As one of the more reputable car manufacturers, Honda is known for producing long-lasting vehicles that require little maintenance during their initial years of use. For buyers that have been seeking the latest SUV models from Honda, many media outlets suggest the 2016 Honda Pilot.The 2016 Pilot is available in a variety of trim levels that provide specific size and feature options for buyers. Among these Pilot models, the most cost effective option available to buyers is the 2016 Honda Pilot LX, a vehicle that still retains many quality features despite its place in the Pilot lineup.

The Basics

The Pilot is a sizable SUV that is in the three-row crossover class. The 2016 model utilizes a 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, and produces 262 pound-feet of torque; a notable improvement from the previous generation that measured at 250-horsepower. Standard LX models are available with front-wheel drive, with the additional option of an all-wheel drive model for buyers.

Fuel Economy

For a mid-size SUV, the Honda Pilot does well in fuel economy. On highways the LX measures at 27 MPG, with city fuel usage at 19 MPG. This is partly feasible due to the Pilot’s Variable Cylinder Management system. This system was installed for fuel efficiency purposes and enables the vehicle to operate on just three of its six available cylinders. It is a seamless system that adjusts based on the intensity and requirements of a particular ride.

Interior Features

In addition to top-of-the-line standard safety features, the Honda Pilot is outfitted with great and up-to-date technology features that will please both drivers and passengers. The car’s comfortable interior is equipped with a 4.2-inch multi-information interface, a USB audio port with specific device compatibility, bluetooth connectivity, push-button start, and folding passenger seats. For entertainment purposes, the LX is fitted with a standard wattage audio system that utilizes a subwoofer and seven speakers. Compatible devices can also connect to the audio system wirelessly though the HandsFreeLink system.

Exterior Features

On the outside, the 2016 Pilot takes on a smoother, less rigid SUV design. The LX is fitted with tinted rear windows and 18-inch alloy wheels, and comes in eight different colors ranging from forest pearl to sapphire metallic.
